  1. You're saying you run in the morning before work, and then hit the gym in the evening after work? Are you struggling to get enough calories for the day?

    Wanted to share a recipe that might just save the next 2 weeks in this house, the Egg Foo Young(ish) from Nom Nom Paleo. I used to cook all of her recipes in the US, but I don't have access to Red Boat fish sauce or coconut aminos, but this one requires nothing, AND doesn't require turning on the oven, just stove top. https://nomnompaleo.com/post/5568966009/egg-foo-young-ish-spinach-egg-ham-coconut We opted to switch out the ham for shredded beef and it was amazing!

  3. I'm so sorry you're going through such bad sugar withdrawals... but I'll tell you straight-up that there's NO WAY I would've survived the first few days of my first W30 without OTC pain meds. Even if medication is a last resort, please don't make yourself miserable if you can't find relief with natural options. That said, some things you might want to try are...

    Thanks All! Made it through a slump, and feeling great that we're 1/2 way there, but also missing my American kitchen. Luckily, I do have a crock pot and my trusty stick blender, so I'm not lacking homemade mayo, which is what gets me through this.

  6. Well, if you're post Whole-30, you can do whatever you want smoothie-wise. The bigger thing that stands out to be is that you have no protein in there. There seems to be two different recommendations on the website. From the meal planner pdf: https://whole30.com/downloads/whole30-meal-planning.pdf They recommend Protein and Fat prior to a workout. (I'd say this is especially for like weight lifting type workouts.) There is also this article, which seems to be more geared towards long effort/high intensity type stuff (if the workout is more than 60 minutes at a continuous mode

  7. Yeah, I keep thinking that Whole30 is not that hard if you are already used to cooking homemade meals. At least that's how it felt for me. Still it's quite strict and in many senses it feels unnecessary for me, but I wanted to keep what I've learned (or most precisely what I've proven to myself, because most of my guidelines are based either common sense or quite well-known nutritional facts). And taking the time to write it down forced me to think carefully about them, also I expect that it helps me with accountability. The two excellent bites rules sounds great, but I'm not re
